Life is an Endless Creative Experience


It is no secret that life is but a dream we renew each day. It is up to us to infuse the dream with artistic expressions of love.  Hopefully, as I reflect on the past 48 hours of my life, you will be inspired to think about the creative moments that have filled your past days.

Visiting my mother this past weekend was a time for reflection and celebration of what was happening in our life.  During the trip, I presented her with a Memory Quilt.  The quilt included photos of special moments we had shared with family members over the past years.  I must admit, when making the quilt, my childish feelings of , “it is not good enough” for her eyes set in and I almost did not complete it. Due to the encouragement of friends, I finished and gifted it to her. Watching as her eyes lit up and her emotions swell, the realization came over me how much this meant to her.  She exclaimed “she had never received such a beautiful gift ~ this is a family heirloom!”

What I learned was, never underestimate the power of giving something from the heart.  We should just let the creative juices God gifted us with flow ~ he will take care of the rest.

“ Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen” ~ Hebrew 11:11
